Product Information

Grow your very own superfood, believed to carry all manner of health benefits and recommended by experts and dietitians. Packed full of vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants, they are not only really good for you, but they taste great too!

Blueberries provide season-long interest and produce lightly fragrant, bell-shaped springtime blossom, followed by delicious fruits that form and colour up ready for picking from August. The show does not end there, as when autumn rolls around, you will see a flash of seasonal colour as the foliage turns a bright flush of scarlet before falling for the winter.

Very easy to grow and look after, blueberries make brilliant patio plants and will perform admirably in pots - do remember though to use ericaceous compost with an acidic pH though as all blueberries are intolerant of lime, seen in alkaline-rich soil.

This late variety will provide a bumper harvest from August once established, providing many pounds of fruit per season - plenty to share with family, friends, and neighbours, or for baking into sweet treats for yourself!

Supplied as a large, established plant in a 3L pot, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

  • While tolerant of shade, blueberries crop better in the sun.
  • Cover plants with netting when in fruit, otherwise you'll just end up feeding the birds.

Care Information

  • Plant in well-drained, acidic soil in a sunny, sheltered spot.
  • If your garden soil has a pH over 5.5, your blueberry is best grown in a pot, in ericaceous soil. Keep it well-watered, preferable with rain water - donít allow the soil to dry out.
  • Water blueberries with rainwater if you can as tap water will gradually raise pH levels.
  • Feed every month with a liquid fertiliser for ericaceous (lime-hating) plants.
  • If growing blueberries in the garden, add plenty of organic matter such as pine needles or composted conifer clippings. Avoid farmyard manure as it will scorch the roots.
  • Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that prune in late Feb Ė early Mar, aiming to remove a proportion of old wood every year. Two year-old wood is the most productive.
  • Take out any damaged, dead, and diseased wood and prune out low branches that will lie on the ground when full of fruit.
  • Pick over the plants several times as not all the fruit ripens at the same time.
  • Fruits can be left on the bush for a few more days after they turn blue for a more intense and complex flavour, when they'll also easily pull away from the cluster.
  • Although self fertile and able to produce a good crop on their own, blueberries yield much more heavily if planted near another one.
